Microsoft wants you to switch from Gmail to Hotmail. O Rly?

Windows Live team has blogged about why you should consider switching from Gmail to Hotmail.

Microsoft wants you to switch from Gmail to Hotmail. O Rly?

And here I was thinking that we are done with the email war. Everyone has an email account that they plan to stick to forever.

But Microsoft does not think so. ಠ_ಠ

In any case, here are the features they highlighted that might want you to make the switch:

Hotmail has Facebook integration.
Hotmail has SkyDrive integration.
Hotmail has Office Web Apps integration.
Hotmail has Sweep feature that can get rid of annoying mails.

I guess if you are a Facebook addict and use SkyDrive and Office Web Apps, you might give it a thought. For most of us, Google’s web services are just fine.

One thing I would admit… Hotmail user interface is insanely fast today. Though you would have to get used to the annoying graphical advertisements.
